    Is possible to custom the json output when using RestEasy?

    Vladimir Albis Newbie

      Hi, i am testing the use of Resteasy in Seam 2 and JBoss 5.1.x.

       

      I know that:

      "RESTEasy uses JAXB to marshall entities. Thus, in order to be able to transfer

      them over the wire, you need to annotate entity classes with @XMLRootElement".

       

      Is it possible to format the json output regarding the @XMLRootElement.

       

      My class

       

      @XmlRootElement(name = "")
      @XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.FIELD)
      public class TimeLineDataJson {
      
          @XmlElement
          private String dateTimeFormat;
          @XmlElement
          private String wikiURL;
          @XmlElement
          private String wikiSection;    
          @XmlElement
          private ArrayList<EventDataJson> events;
      

       

      The output is

       

       

      {"timeLineDataJson":
        {"dateTimeFormat":"Gregorian",
         "wikiURL":"http:\/\/simile.mit.edu\/shelf\/",
         "wikiSection":"My Tasks",
         "events":[
                  {"description":"Implement CRUD for User.",
                   "durationEvent":true,
                   "end":"We May 30 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "image":"img\/btnnewuser.png",
                   "start":"Mo May 28 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "title":"CRUD operation for User"},
                   
                  {"description":"Implement web services.",
                   "durationEvent":true,
                   "end":"We Jun 6 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "image":"img\/btnnewuser.png",
                   "start":"Mo Jun 4 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "title":"My new task"}
          ]
        }
      }
      

       

      I don't want the root element to be added in the output.

       

      Expected result

       

      {
        "dateTimeFormat":"Gregorian",
         "wikiURL":"http:\/\/simile.mit.edu\/shelf\/",
         "wikiSection":"My Tasks",
         "events":[
                  {"description":"Implement CRUD for User.",
                   "durationEvent":true,
                   "end":"We May 30 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "image":"img\/btnnewuser.png",
                   "start":"Mo May 28 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "title":"CRUD operation for User"},
                   
                  {"description":"Implement web services.",
                   "durationEvent":true,
                   "end":"We Jun 6 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "image":"img\/btnnewuser.png",
                   "start":"Mo Jun 4 2012 09:00:00 GMT-0600",
                   "title":"My new task"}
          ]
        
      }
      

       

      Is this possible?
